Quincy Center Station Air Rights Update 07/12/17
MBTA issues Request for Interest for Quincy Center Station air rights development
The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) has issued a Request for Interest (RFI) for development of 6.31 acres of air rights located over Quincy Center Station and its’ surroundings. The MBTA is looking to enter a 99-year lease of the air rights with a qualified developer. If there is sufficient development interest, then the MBTA will issue a formal Request for Proposals (RFP) and work with the City of Quincy to designate a developer.
Any development would presumably require total demolition of a condemned parking garage which currently stands above Quincy Center Station. The top three floors of the five-story garage are scheduled to be demolished over 18 months starting this Fall.
A site tour of Quincy Center Station for interested developers is scheduled for next Wednesday, July 19th at 12 PM; the Request for Interest (RFI) response is due Monday, July 31st at 12 PM. If issued, the official Request for Proposals (RFP) for the air rights will be released Monday, August 14th, with proposals due Monday, September 25th.
